Hi, my name is Catherine Underwood! This is my 18th year teaching for the 2020-2021 school year, 6th year in AllenISD, and I am proud to annouce that this will be my 1st year to teach Art. It is truly a dream come true for me to teach Art!
I have 3 children of my own, Lindsay, who graduated from Allen High School in 2021 and is going to Texas Tech University this year, Landon, who is a Sophomore at Allen High School, and my youngest, Lily, who is a 5th grader at Preston! We have been able to call Allen home for 17 years now and just love it it here. I am a sixth generation Texan, grew up in Plano, and graduated from Plano East Senior High School in the 90s. I graduated with Honors from college from Texas Tech University (Wreck 'Em!) with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I love Texas Tech and I'll always be a Red Raider at heart!
I enjoy spending time outdoors in my spare time, painting on canvas or just about anything that could use a good face lift, watching a good movie, traveling all over, and reading the latest good book. This summer in 2021, we went to San Diego and Los Angeles, California! We enjoyed some much needed relaxing beach time at La Jolla Beach, Coronado Island Beach, Mission Beach, and Malibu Beach up in LA! We also loved going on some adventures along the way to the San Diego Zoo, kayaking in the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, discovering Hollywood Blvd., and Rodeo Dr. for the first time!
I am so excited to be at Preston again for another wonderful year and this time in the wonderful ART Room!
